Quoted from Rarehero:

Short version:
-Dutch Pinball announced Big Lebowski Pinball in 2013, made awesome prototypes that gave people the confidence to pre-order games.
-They blew all the pre-order money & didn't pay their contract manufacturer.
-Manufacturer stopped making/shipping games.
-DP lied about the situation, claiming there was a PCB issue and they were redesigning it.
-There was an opportunity to resolve the situation, but ARA (the manufacturer) wanted 51% ownership of DP to cover their asses, Barry/Jaap were stubborn and refused, even though they had no leverage.
-They tried to Ponzi their way out of it by announcing a Bride of Pinbot 2.0 Super LE for $12,500 and were yelled and laughed at...who would buy a new game at that price from them when Lebowskis were in limbo? The project went nowhere.
-They tried to partner with a new mfg in China & Ponzi their way out of it by having people buy new games to help pay for the old ones...this fell apart.
-It's been a shit show ever since....lots of people have been fully paid up for $8500 games since 2103/14, and have been refused refunds.

Pinball is hard.
